(christian.org.uk)—Students in Aberystwyth are pushing for thousands of Gideon Bibles to be removed from university accommodation.
A poll conducted by the students’ union claims that more than half of students felt that having the Bibles in university accommodation as a matter of course was “uncomfortable” or “unacceptable”.
The call to ban Bibles mirrors action by the University of Huddersfield in 2013 – it said it wanted its properties to be “ethically neutral”.
Student John David Morgan raised the matter at a student council meeting that 50 people attended in January.
He claimed that the “inclusion of Bibles in university bedrooms is inappropriate in a multicultural university such as Aberystwyth”
